DO I HAVE A CHANCE
« on: May 03, 2006, 09:42:50 AM »
So I haven't taken the LSAT yet but my Gpa is low (2.9-3.0). Do i have a chance in hell of getting into law school. Not trying to go to Hardvard or anything. Just wondering what people think.

Cases in point:

These are only a few samples.  Go to lawschoolnumbers.com, search users, and set parameters to LSAT>169 and GPA<3.0, it returns 74 users, most of whom have gotten into great schools.
I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

Alamo has a point with his examples, but don't overlook the fact that 2/3 are engineering majors. A 2.8 in engineering is different than a 2.8 from a liberal arts major.
